Hello, I've been a lurker around here for awhile and finally got around to posting!

Mainly, I'm interested in prostitution and pornography in this period. I find it hard to believe that they didn't exist, especially with Japan's attitude towards them in later periods, but at the same time I've read nothing about either. So, basically I would like some information on these subjects, and if possible some English-language resources from which more could be learned about them.

Thanks!

I came across this years ago:
http://www.east-asian-history.net/textbooks/172/ch7.htm
I haven't read through the whole thing in some time and, granted, it's mainly focused on ukiyo-e; but you might find some kernels in there...

They existed all right, and you need go no further than this book to learn all about it.
